A Cantata For A Lady

The Memorial of St. Cecilia, Virgin and Martyr, is today. As the patron saint of musician, there were times in history where concerts were performed in her honor and composition written in her name. George Frederick Handel composed this work in 1739, using a poem written in 1687 by John Dryden.

To all those involved in church music, no matter what level of competency, may you continue to "make a joyful sound unto the Lord."
